Welcome to the GWTW Forum.
Guests (non-registered users) can view the forum but are unable to post.  If you don't have anything to say then why would you bother to register?
One of the most popular sections of the GWTW Forum has long been the Swap Meet.  A great place to sell old, seldom flown kites or to get great deals on used (gently flown) kites.  Only registered users can see the Swap Meet section, let alone wheel and deal.  1000's (literally) of kites have changed hands thanks to the Swap Meet.
There are several more benefits to being a registered user, but you'll have to join our little community to find out all the "secrets".
Questions or concerns? Contact Steve ... just drop an email to: forum.gwtwkites@gmail.com

The sketch is close.  Pass both bungie ends through the holes from the back of the sail and make an overhand knot.  Knot will be on the front of the kite. Put the vinyl tubing under the knot,  then slide the whiskers in the tubing.  Easier to explain with a photo,  but I need to figure out photobucket (again ugh).  Michael.

Interesting, all these years my whiskers have been wrong.

Hi Coop,  And I would almost bet that once in a while a little birdie would say that they were just not right. Michael.

Went to ITW today. Paul gave it a checkup and got me the stand offs and US.Bridle and bungees all good. This was attached at the swivels and confusing me. Paul didn't know what it was for either. Not stock so it's removed. Don't think I'll get to fly it till Thursday. Gonna be fun.
